166. Election Thoughts, Libertarianism, ACB and More with Sean Boston

With the election today, I thought it would be good to share a discussion I had with Sean Boston where we talked about our election thoughts and much more. We talked about ACB, Libertarianism, and our secularizing culture. Furthermore, we were able to agree and disagree, while having a lively discussion. Plus, it helps that Sean is a very funny guy, and much sharper than he gives himself credit for. So, dive into the conversation here:

Final Election Thoughts

I wanted to be sure to get this episode out before the election was over. Mainly, I was hoping to be able to get my thoughts and predictions out there before it happens. This quote from Benjamin Netanyahu sums up my thoughts on what will likely happen with Trump pretty well. And, this is how I evaluate what’s going on around me in politics to make a decision.

“I always lose the election in the polls, and I always win it on election day.”

Plus we dove into more than just Election Thoughts

Also, we discuss much more than just our thoughts on the election and potential outcomes. We looked at what it means to be a “real libertarian,” if there even is such a thing. Moreover, we talked about the woes of the Libertarian party, and my misgivings about Jo Jorgensen. Next, we dove into our thoughts on the nomination (that hadn’t happened at the time) for Amy Coney Barrett. We talked about the secularization of our society and some of the fallout we expect to see. And, we discussed much more as well. If you enjoy, funny and insightful conversations, I think you’ll get a lot out of this one.

174. Reviving Traditional Art Conversation of Our Generation

I recently sat down with Amy Mastrine, an artist who works in traditional mediums, to talk about the state of art. Finding a way to create new iterations of traditional art is something that would go a long way for our culture. Because I enjoyed this conversation, I wanted to revisit some of the great insights to discuss them more. Amy offered a lot of interesting ideas, so I thought it would be good to elaborate and offer my thoughts. Also, I've thought about doing this for some of my other interviews, so if you enjoy this, let me know! And, if there's anyone I should interview, let me know here. "Culture is the arts elevated to a set of beliefs." -Thomas Wolfe The Beauty of Traditional Art Digital art lacks soul in some way. There are a lot of great things happening in digital art. For instance, video games are creating incredible scenes. Despite the beauty one can create with digital art, there is something irreplaceable about traditional art. https://youtu.be/hhDScD6qTPE Beauty is Objective Beauty is an objective reality. Although many people will argue it is subjective, it is an objective reality. However, people who argue for the subjectivity of beauty touch on something true. Because beauty is an abstraction, it does require a subject to observe it. https://youtu.be/TVPVgHa1Dx8 The highest form of art What is the highest form of art? Is it painting, sculpting, or stained glass? In this interview, Amy called architecture the highest form of art, and I agree. Although architecture isn't often thought of as art, I would say it is. In my opinion, art is creating beauty in an expressive way. Despite not being expressive in the same way, architecture does have this relationship to people because it is how we live. "Eventually, my eyes were opened, and I really understood nature. I learned to love at the same time." -Claude Monet — This episode is sponsored by ยท Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
